Japan Spy Satellite Launch Ends in Failure
日本间谍卫星发射失败

  Sat Nov 29, 4:29 AM ET

  TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan blew up a rocket carrying two spy satellites for monitoring secretive neighbor North Korea minutes after launching it on Saturday.
  东京(路透社)本周六,用来监视邻国朝鲜两颗间谍卫星搭载火箭发射后几分钟被点燃销毁。

  ★习惯词组blow up在本文的意思是To explode.爆炸。bombs blowing up.爆炸的炸弹。另外还有三层意思,To come into being.形成。如:A storm blew up.风暴骤起;还可以有To fill with air, inflate(充气,膨胀)的意思,blow up a tire.给轮胎充气;To enlarge (a photographic image or print).(照片或印刷品)的放大,扩大。有时这个词组还用来指To lose one's temper.发脾气,失去耐性。
  ★Secretive,Having or marked by an inclination to secrecy; Not open, forthright, or frank. 隐藏的有保密的意图或以此为特征的;不公开、不坦率、或不直率的。be secretive about ……对……保守隐密。

  The Japanese-made H2-A rocket was shown blasting off into a cloudy sky to applause from observers at the launch site on the tiny island of Tanegashima, where Japan's launch center is located. Just minutes later, though, an announcement was made that the rocket would not be able to complete its mission and had been destroyed by the launch controllers. North Korea is believed to be developing nuclear weapons, and the satellites, along with two others launched in March, had been promoted as a significant boost to Japanese intelligence gathering.
  日本从位于鹿儿岛县种子岛的发射中心显示了H2-A火箭发射云空的欢呼场景,但几分钟后,发射中心宣布火箭不能完成使命,由发射控制站销毁。 日本认为朝鲜在开发核武器,此次即三月份发射的两颗卫星都是用来推进日本情报收集的重大举措。

  ★blast off.发射、升空。The spaceship blasted off. 宇宙飞船发射上天了。
  ★Boost, A push upward or ahead. 推举力向上或向前的推动力。
  ★An agency, a staff, or an office employed in gathering such information. 情报部门从事收集情报的机构,人员或政府机关. have secret intelligence of the enemy's plans.获得敌方计划的秘密情报。an intelligence agent.情报员, 谍报员。intelligence office.情报处[局]; [美]职业介绍所。

  The failure is an extreme embarrassment for Japan just weeks after neighboring China put a man into space. There was no immediate word on the cost of the launch. Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi termed the result "unfortunate" and directed officials to determine what went wrong as soon as possible, Kyodo news agency said.
  这次失败对于日本来说及其尴尬,因为邻国中国刚刚在几个星期前把宇航员送上太空。目前对于失败原因还没有直接消息。据东京新闻社透露,日本首相小泉纯一郎讲话表示非常遗憾,并指派官员尽快查明原因。

  ★Something said. An utterance, a remark, or a comment. 话语说的东西、言辞、评论或评语。May I say a word about that?我可以就此说说我的看法吗? Actions speak louder than words.行动比言语有力。和word相关的常用习惯用语很多,have a word with somebody意思是和某人讲几句话,但是have words with somebody 意思是吵架、吵嘴。
